No one looks forward to dealing with an insurance company. You can't help but feel like they don't really have your best interests at heart, and instead are looking to mitigate what they have to cover. Sadly, this is the way many insurance companies operate -- but they still serve an important purpose. And you have to deal with them after a car accident if you want to effectively handle the logistics of your crash and move on in a timely manner.
So what should you do with your insurance company after a car accident? First, you should read your insurance policy and know what you are covered for. You should then contact your insurance company and inform them about the wreck.
